KILLED THEM TROLLING SMALL CRANKBAITS IN DIFFERENT COLORS !!!
This time of year fishing is either really good or slow . Today we barely caught 30 fish between the two of us and the quality left a great deal to be desired. So in the last 2 hours we trolled up and down the middle of the lake noting landmarks the fish were caught as well as depth which turned out to be consistent.

Nice size crappy and yellow perch ! Sometimes we had doubles - we both had fish on at the same time and different species to boot! We used a # 2 speed on the trolling motor and I noted the depth and fish arches on the sonar as we trolled. Big sunnies in the shallows or under overhanging branches in shady areas, but the best quality fish trolling !

Have a whole new respect for trolling especially when nothing else is working.

Trolling can be productive and provide a lot of information about a lake. It sounds like you had a good day. Congrats. thumb

My late father-in-law, and one of the best guys to be in a boat with, was a dedicated troller around the marina next to his lake house on Lake of the Ozarks. My mother-in-law caught two 5+lber's in consecutive passes in that marina. He was too lazy to be a caster, he used to say.

We were on the Gravois arm of the lake, and used to see Guido Hibdon at the convenience store all the time. Nice guy.

I've caught a few slow motoring into my local cove on Lake Travis dragging a #5 KVD crankbait behind the boat. One pound cruisers, all of them.
